Request Description

The city of Denver has several golf courses around the city. The Recreational Park manager is trying to set the schedule for the employees at these courses. His concern is that he wants to have enough staff to handle the daily demands but to not be overstaffed. He has concerns about the next year’s budget and is trying to curb expenses where possible. To be able to make a decision regarding staffing, he collected data regarding the number of rounds of golf played during the week. The weekend was excluded because the weekends are always very busy. He wanted to see if there was a significant difference between the days of the week in terms of rounds being played. If there was a difference, then he could use this information to help make staffing decisions. The result of the data collection is as follows:
